Petoskey, “Land of the Million-Dollar Sunset,” has been both home and destination for generations since the 1800s. Nestled on the southern shores of Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay in Northern Michigan, Petoskey boasts a unique downtown shopping experience in the historic “Gaslight District,” with enough dining, festivals, museums and music to keep the most active family busy from dawn to dusk.
Little Traverse Wheelway is part of the national North County Trail that winds along the bay through Petoskey, connecting neighboring communities, Harbor Springs and Alanson in the north, and Bay Harbor and Charlevoix to the south. The deep blue water of Little Traverse Bay is just one of many beautiful backdrops for favorite outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking and Petoskey-stone hunting.
Petoskey stones are a popular souvenir whether found on the beach or in a shop. The stone is a fossil of fragments of a coral reef. The movement of frozen lake ice each winter turns up new fossils, giving hunters a fresh batch each spring.
All seasons bring adventure and stunning views to this town of around 6,000 in northern Emmet County. Nearby ski hills and snowmobile trails, a community winter sports park and miles of cross country trails bring people long after summer days are a fond memory.
The Bay View Association and Bay Harbor are two resort communities flanking Petoskey. Bay View is a National Historic Landmark community. What started out as a Methodist tent settlement in 1875 is now a quaint neighborhood of Victorian-style cottages. Bay View hosts a number of music festivals and theatrical productions.
Bay Harbor, developed in 1995, boasts world-class shopping, dining and golfing, a lake marina and Great Lakes Center for the Arts, a 500-seat theater with programs including musical performances, productions, opera, films, dance and more.
